these days. >> and i want to take a look at a longer term chart. in the midst of all this in europe and everywhere else, that is a chart that a lot of people would be envious of. jim, we can't neglect what's happening today in washington. has it affected you at all? have you made any plans? are you doing anything based on what these publioliticians are wrangling' about? >> certainly, it's slowed our growth. >> it has? >> in the couple of years, it's slowed even faster. government was weaker than normal for the quarter and i think we'll see that going forward a bit. it's hurting for us. we have a lot of cash, we have no debt. so it's not a major, major impact. certainly the lack of clarity is hurting our customers and that ultimately affects us, as well. >> so you do business with the government and also the uncertainty around the policy has affected some of your customers to some extend? >> oh, absolutely. now, we sell a high valued proposition, so we do well in downed markets. so at the same time it's hurt us with some government customers. overall, the lack of certainty has led pe
in their friday trading. most by about 1%. markets across europe were also weaker in early trading. we'll have a lot more of this coming up later in the broadcast. >>> and the nation pauses today to remember those killed just one week ago in newtown. >> what a remarkable week it's been. among those is the first lady, who has written a letter in this morning's "hartford courant." she writes, may the memories of those beautiful children and those heroic adults be a blessing for your community and for our country. >> and for more on the somber ceremonies, we're joined by wendy gillette in newtown. good morning, wendy. >> reporter: good morning, rob and sunny. newtown is a very different place. one week ago, at this time, it was a different place. a quiet, small town where violence was extremely rare. now, as the nation continues to heal after the massacre, many will pause this morning to remember what was lost. bells across connecticut will toll 26 times at 9:30 this morning, marking the exact moment when terror invaded sandy hook elementary school. governor dan malloy called for a moment of sile
reporter there, in europe. and so i think you're going to see these two companies combine with ice taking over the nyse. you're going to see a much stronger company, a company that is going to do very well. and i think the stockholders are going do very well because of that. >> susie: we're go stock watching that story right here in our backyard. we will be watching it closely. thank you so much, real pleasure talking with you. senator judd gregg, former republican senator from new hampshire. >> i'm >> reporter: i'm ruben ramirez. still ahead, we'll take a look at how mobile payment technology may soon replace having to carry a plastic credit card. >> tom: we got another look at the economy between july and september, and it grew faster than first thought. third quarter gdp was revised higher today to just over 3%. that's up from the first estimate of 2.7%, and more than double the growth in the second quarter. fast forward to last week, and more americans filed for first- time unemployment insurance. new claims for jobless benefits rose by 17,000 to 361,000. but home sales continue stren
casualty rates in europe. and so when chet comes back to san francisco, those people who signed no no were looked upon as cowards. they were traitors. they sat out the war where these other people died. everyone a friend, an uncle or somebody they knew who had died, lost an arm, or was killed in service. chet comes back and he is literally spit on by his own community. so my protagonist is someone who is an ex-jazz musician, who spent his adult years playing with black groups, he comes back to san francisco at a time when japan town is still sort of unraveling from this sort of who lives here, who doesn't live here, and he wants to find japan town again, find his own sort of home while at the same time around him his own community is looking at him as if he is a traitor. so as he says and used to say in the play, i'm on the outside of the outside. my country thinks i'm a criminal, my own community thinks i'm a traitor. how does he sort of find home for himself in america given that kind of a set up? so that's where the stories all kind of converged and my central character, where he came f
're seeing a spike in vix futures. it's indicating more volatility ahead. europe, largely taking the cues from here in the united states, and the news last evening about plan b. we are seeing a 1% loss in italy, germany is down by .9%. >> of course, futures as you saw are taking a hit on concerns that a deal will not be reached to avert that fiscal cliff. an attempt by house speaker boehner to avoid that class and pass the so-called plan b tax bill. that failed. the measure that would have kept current tax rates for those making less than $1 million a year. it never even made it to the house floor. speaker boehner is scheduled to hold a news conference about an hour from now. of course, we'll bring that to you live. >> here we are. >> here we are once again. >> there was no real plan b. there was no real possibility of this. the republicans, the vast majority signed a pledge, they will not vote for tax increase. who would think they would suddenly turn around and vote for a tax increase. they pledged not to. >> the speaker said they might. >> i don't care. >> unless it's some sort of a pl
repaired, if you will, greece, now. we don't have to worry about europe at least until the second half of the year. we have stability in china because of economic activity and that was a drag and then we have the doj promising tease and the federal reserve doing the same thing and all of a sudden it is not the world looking over the cliff, but we 3-quarters of the world looking the other way starting to come back and that is the difference. tracy: what happens? we are stealing from queue to. >> we always steal from one quarter to another. tracy: europe might come back to bother us again the second half of the year. could that mean an okay first half, second half disaster's again? >> we never have smooth sailing at anything. sell in may and go away. which works sometimes and doesn't work. what we feel good about is investors are forced with a problem that dividend taxes are going to go up. to me that is a good problem because it is going to take investors out of the safety of the blue chips and staples and utilities and put them into faster growth equities. riskier. if we look at the ri
because i see china coming back a little, maybe europe's done going down, we seem to be a little bit stalled. somebody's building something around this world. >> i think it's a matter of jabil being very competitive in the markets that we serve and having sufficient diversification so that if one part of our business, for instance networking or telecommunications may be going through a lull or a slower period with government spending and business spending, capital spending down, we have some other parts of our business that are doing extremely well. you mentioned some of the mechanics business we're involved in which we call our materials technology group. that has nothing to do with electronics so we don't have to sell any electronic hardware for those businesses to perform well. parts of our business really are a reflection of the economy and other parts of our business are growing very robustly. so i'm very hopeful for the balance of the year and, you know, i think the company is diversified enough to take advantage of whatever opportunities are out there. >> okay. i am so glad ab
at europe, it's recovering. you look at the way china is acting, it's recovering. a lot of the weakness that could come from the fiscal cliff may be picked up from overseas markets which have been a drag this year. maybe you see a flipping of that in 2013. >> it's interesting that you are looking at the emerging markets. even though, yes, you're looking at higher growth rates than some of these outside the u.s. hot spots, they've come down quite a bit. does that slowdown in growth affect you? >> no question it's slowed down quite a bit. the big three things that have happened in 2012, only five days left, are things that didn't have. greece does not have an exit. citigroup had a 90% chance earlier this year. the biggest day of this jurn year was june 17th when they elected a moderate who did not try to pull greece out. and germany stepped up and gave them some money and that september the 6th, that was the european central bank. so you had china, maria, the united states and greece. none of them went off the cliff. maria, this is for you. our little christmas present for you, maria. >>
. they don't know what the tax rates are. clearly europe has gone in the right trajectory. there's some things set up here for markets to behave normally again and i think that would be fabulous for those that have capital market experience, those are obviously the most vulnerable. if you go over the cliff, you stay at the cliff. some of the regional banks that are coming back, as well, companies like regionons financial has gotten some of its credit woes behind it. they may surprise with the capital returns, as well. capital one has solid consolidators. they're now the seventh largest bank in this country. a shock to everybody, but very cheap to future earnings as long as we don't stay over the cliff for a long period of time. >> thank you so much. a former marma was indecided for insider trading. >> he was indicted today stemming from his trading of two pharmaceutical companies during the period of 2000. it's been a tough year for him, a married father of three who fainted at one point from anxiety when the fbi visited his home. but the question looming large over this case all along
for a commission. and he headed up the combat motion picture photography for the war in europe, d-day, the liberation of paris, the liberation of daukau. and i worked with him. i worked with him on "shane" i worked with him on "giant" to a certain extent. i was his associate producer and directed the location scenes for the diery of ann frank. and speaking of men tors, my father was the principal one. and i learned so much from him. not just craft but ideas and then ed murrow asked me to come back. >> rose: before that, so are you there working with your father. are you working with the great directors. i assume your clear intent was to become a director at that moment. >> it was. it was. and programs somewhere deep in my mind i was think do i want to spend my entire life trying to become the second-best film direct never my family. but very much. and i was directing alfred hitchcock and peter gunn and television series out there i really loved it. >> rose: and then there is a meeting, ed war r murrow is in los angeles, jack kennedy, president kennedy had made him head of u.s. inf
, the governmental dysfunction of europe without the excuse of being separate countries. and you know, i think it's a serious challenge to america's standing in the world that the views of credit car mets an-- markets. and washington is not faking it yet with sufficiency seriousness. >> i just add, not in a partisan way, that the 213 shall 215 to 2089-- 209 vote last night in the house before the whole thing came apart which was to not take the sequestration funds out, let's take them out of domestic spending, a party-line vote. 20 -- democrats stuck on that. not a single one broke. and i think you are seeing far more unity in the democratic ranks than in the republican ranks right now. i agree it is a governmental problem. if the whole thing comes grinding to a halt and we see it reflected in the financial markets and the stock market an elsewhere, then it's a governmental problem. it's not simply a democratic advantage or republican advantage. but right now the real fault lines are in the republican caucus. >> rooney: we-- . >> woodruff: sounds like none of us knows where this is head. so let's
perceived in the market. that's focused on the situation in europe and we think that mario draghi announcement of late summer took it off the table. we do, however, still maintain a holding in gold because we recognize that it is not an all clear sign. >> you like natural resources. the odd kmodity plague has been broughtal for a lot of investors. why do you like that and how do you play it, specifically? >> there are a couple of reasons we like commodities. we think global growth could surprise on the upside in 2013. specifically the u.s. as well as emerging market picture. so the leverage that you get through the commodity complex is direct. secondly, perhaps not as important as the growth story though, is inflation protection you get from commodities. and there is a high correlation between inflation and commodity prices. so although we don't see inflation as near term problem, we want to protect our client portfolios longer term. >> you like a merging markets, but you're very specific about the markets that you like. not all of them are performing the way you would like them t
the military army. >> there are roughly 150,000 total. the congo is about the size of western europe. i believe the estimates are somewhere in the 6,000, 5-6,000 deployed. there's more -- 5 or 6,000 deployed in the east. i don't know what the exact estimate of the congo military deployment in the east is. there's a vast amount of territory the military is trying to cover with 150,000 troops. >> still, i mean, we're talking about a force of a thousand, and so why is this such a big issue for the drc in order to be able to basically prevail in the situation? let me say a slight revision. i think probably today the m23 probably has some 2,000 or so troops. i think he has pointed out the size of the congo, i think graphically describe the congo as a country which is as large as the eastern part of the united states from the atlantic to the mississippi. it is an enormous country and since the split of sue can it's geographically the largest in of africa. the eastern congo is one of the most difficult areas in which to operate. it is an an area that is deeply forested in some places, double and tripl
such as western europe where you don't -- we don't have to to have what you have. and we go to other places i've been shocked shocked in some countries that are not countries friendly to the united states and seemed minimal amount of marine presence that we have there. and then, of course, we learned, i think, at least i did for the first time or i guess i heard it, but didn't stick previously the marines are there to guard the documents, and, i mean, that's shocking. the first obligation ought to be to protect -- americans in the embassy. i'm hoping it will change. i'm sure it will change. it seems to that the rules of engagement need the review. i looked a the the people streaming through the front gate in benghazi. that wouldn't have taken that much to stop the attack if indeed they would have responded to it immediately, it seemed to me. again, you're looking at film, and i understand it's a lot more sterile than being there on the ground at the time when the people are coming through the front gate. it seems to me that it's time to do something about it. and nothing was done until -- i d
